Review: Rocket by Harley Wylde

Published Aug. 2019

Read and reviewed Oct. 2020


Violeta — It’s been a year since I was brought to the US and given to Rocket. I’d thought he was like the others and would only cause me pain. I was wrong. Rocket is the kindest, sweetest man I’ve ever met. I arrived an abused, pregnant teen. Now I’m a more confident woman, and I have Rocket to thank. Falling in love with him was inevitable, but now I need him to see me as a desirable woman and not a girl who needs his protection.

Rocket — The young girl who came to live with me was more broken than I’d realized. The horrors she faced have made her stronger, but it didn’t happen overnight. It’s hard not to watch her, to want her. I shouldn’t. I’m too damn old for an eighteen-year-old woman. She’s not as fragile, physically and emotionally, but I can’t shut off the protector inside me that wants to shelter her and keep her safe. When she’s taken, I know that the men responsible will die. I only hope that side of me doesn’t scare my sweet Vi, but nothing will stop me from spilling their blood. I just don’t know if we can end the war before it starts, or if this will only be the beginning. I’ll keep her safe, no matter the cost, because she’s mine whether she knows it or not.

WARNING: This book contains violence, strong language, explicit sex scenes, and an abused woman. But it also has a biker who will protect the woman he loves, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily-ever-after. 

May be spoilers:

Rocket is the 2nd in the Hades Abyss MC series. It has 10 chapters with an epilogue and is about Rocket and Vi. I do recommend reading the series in order. 

Rocket and Vi meet when Spider agrees to take in the sisters. Rocket steps up to protect her. 

Vi has been hurt and she’s pregnant when they first meet. She’s very scared of men. 

She is 17 when she comes to live with him. 

He does keep her at a distance for a short time which hurts her, but thankfully, he’s not been with anyone since meeting her.  

He makes his move once she turns 18 as he’s very much in love with her. 

I loved how sweet he was with her. Some steam. 

Lots of stuff going on that was a continuance from the 1st. 

Great read, I thought. Kept my attention. Reads fast as it flows great. 

No cheating, no real ow/om drama-other than the bad guys, no separations other than distance. 

Epilogue is a month out. They are just getting married and are pregnant. Wish it was further out, but I”m sure we’ll see them in future stories. 

Loved being able to see previous characters.  

Loved Teller, can’t wait for his story. 

Safety gang: She was raped and abused for a few years. She is taken and hurt pretty badly. 

I gave it ✯✯✯✯ . Thanks for reading.
